HELP SECTION

GREYS
Type: Task
Use:  GREYS will write commands to a plot file for the execution of a
      grey-scale plot for an image.  Optionally a second image can be
      represented as contours superimposed on the grey scale.  The
      images are assumed to be of type MA.  Optionally, the locations
      of slices (taken from SLICE files) and windows (given by
      CLBOXes) may be overlaid.
Adverbs:
  DOCONT......IF > 0 requests that contour overlays be done.  At least
              one of IN2NAME, IN2CLASS, IN2SEQ, and IN2DISK must also
              be specified.
  DOCOLOR.....If > 0, do a true-color picture using INNAME if it is an
              RGB cube to give all three colors or using INNAME,
              IN3NAME, and IN4NAME as the red, green, and blue images
              respectively.  RGB cubes are made by RGBMP, TVHUI, MCUBE
              (with PUTHEAD), and LAYER.  If <= 0, take one plane of
              INNAME as a grey-scale image.
  INNAME......Image name for grey scale.    Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Image class for grey scale.   Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Image seq. # for grey scale.  0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk unit # for grey scale.   0 => any.
        Optional contour image: may be same image as grey scale
        All blank or DOCONT <= 0. -> no contours
  IN2NAME.....Image name for contours.      Standard defaults.
  IN2CLASS....Image class for contours.     Standard defaults.
  IN2SEQ......Image seq. # for contours.    0 => highest.
  IN2DISK.....Disk unit # for contours.     0 => any.
        Optional green and blue images.  They are used only if DOCOLOR
        > 0 and the INNAME file does not have RGB as its third axis.
  IN3NAME.....Image name for green.         Standard defaults.
  IN3CLASS....Image class for green.        Standard defaults.
  IN3SEQ......Image seq. # for green.       0 => highest.
  IN3DISK.....Disk unit # for green.        0 => any.
  IN4NAME.....Image name for blue.          Standard defaults.
  IN4CLASS....Image class for blue.         Standard defaults.
  IN4SEQ......Image seq. # for blue         0 => highest.
  IN4DISK.....Disk unit # for blue.         0 => any.
  BLC.........Bottom Left Corner of grey-scale image  (0,0) means
              (1,1).  The contour image window is the same size as the
              grey image window, but a smaller window will be selected
              if needed to overlap the images.  See DOALIGN.
  TRC.........Top Right Corner of grey-scale image: (0,0) means top
              right corner of map.  NOTE: for the grey-scale image
              TRC(3-7) is set to BLC(3-7) since only one plane is
              shown.  If the contour image is a cube, TRC(3) is taken
              to select the plane of that cube to be used for
              contouring.  This allows a contour image of one plane to
              overlay a grey image of anther plane of the same cube.
  XYRATIO.....The ratio of the X-axis to Y-axis pixel separations.
              0  => use ratio of axis increments or Y to X windows
  PIXRANGE....Min,Max of Image intensity.  0 => entire range
  FUNCTYPE....Image intensity transfer function
              'LN' => linear = 1;
              'LG' => log = 2;
              'L2' => extreme log = 3;
              'SQ' => square root = 4;
              'NE' => negative linear = 5.
              'NG' => negative log = 6;
              'N2' => negative extra log = 7;
              'NQ' => negative square root = 8;
              others => linear.
  APARM.......(1,2) PIXRANGE for green image 0 -> green image entire
                    range.  Can also be used for green pixrange when
                    plotting an RGB image - default is PIXRANGE.
              (3,4) PIXRANGE for blue image 0 -> blue image entire
                    range.  Can also be used for blue pixrange when
                    plotting an RGB image - default is PIXRANGE.
              (5) code number for FUNCTYPE of green image;
                  0 -> FUNCTYPE
              (6) code number for FUNCTYPE of blue image;
                  0 -> FUNCTYPE
              These are used when building an RGB truecolor image from
              three independent images with DOCOLOR > 0.
  LTYPE.......Labelling type, see HELP LTYPE for details:
              1 = border, 2 = no ticks, 3 or 7 = standard, 4 or 8 =
              relative to ref. pixel, 5 or 9 = relative to subimage
              (BLC, TRC) center, 6 or 10 = pixels.  7-10 all labels
              other than tick numbers and axis type are omitted.
              Less than 0 is the same except that the plot file
              version number and create time are omitted.
              Add n * 100 to alter the metric scaling.
  DOALIGN.....Controls how the grey and contour images are to be
              aligned (see HELP DOALIGN).  True (>.1) means that the
              images must agree in their coordinates, though not
              necessarily in the reference pixel position.  Alignment
              is by coordinate values (if DOALIGN > -0.1) or by
              offsets from the reference pixel positions (if DOALIGN
              <= -0.1).  If DOALIGN < -1.5, alignement is at pixels
              (1,1,...) ignoring the headers.
  PLEV........Percent of peak for the contour increment.  If PLEV and
              CLEV are zero, 10 is used.
  CLEV........Image intensity value for the contour increment.
              Used only if PLEV = 0.
  LEVS........Contour levels in units of the increment.  The levels
              must be in ascending order and a maximum of 30 levels
              are permitted.     0 => -10,-9,-8,-7,-6,-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,
              1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,0
  DOWEDGE.....If false (<= 0.0), do not plot a step wedge.  If 1.5 >=
              DOWEDGE > 0.0, then plot a wedge along the top of the
              image using PIXRANGE range of values.  If between 1.5 and
              2.5, plot a wedge along the right-hand edge of the image
              using PIXRANGE range of image values.  If between 2.5 and
              3.5, plot a wedge along the top with the full range of
              image values.  If between 3.5 and 4.5, plot a wedge along
              the right hand edge with the full range of image values.
              If LTYPE >= 3, ticks and tick labels are drawn for the
              wedge.  In true-color plots, the labeling is done for
              the red image.  DOWEDGE=3 or 4 is recommended in that
              case.
  DOCIRCLE....False (<= 0) means that tick marks are short lines
              extending inward from the plot borders.  True (>0)
              requests that a full coordinate grid be drawn.
  STVERS......Version number of ST (star position) file to be used to
              plot star positions as plus signs.
              0 => highest, < 0 => no star positions plotted
  STFACTOR....Scale factor used to multiply star sizes in file
              for plotting. = 0 => don't plot stars, < 0 also
              plot any labels.
  CBPLOT......Selects the corner in which the half-power beam plot is
              placed
                  0: no beam plot
                  1: lower left
                  2: lower right
                  3: upper right
                  4: upper left
                  5: plots the beam in a separate pane
                  6 - 10: as 1-5 but slightly filled in
                 11 - 15: as 1-5 more filled in
                 16 - 20: as 1-5 scribbled over
              CBPLOT = -n  < 0 => use CBPLOT=n but do not plot any
              contours, grey scale, or vectors in the Clean Beam area.
  IN2VERS.....Start slice file version to overlay location
  IN3VERS.....End slice file version to overlay location
  NBOXES......Number of boxes to overlay
  CLBOX.......Boxes to overlay
  DOTV........> 0 => plot directly on the TV device, otherwise
              make a plot file for later display on one or
              more devices (including the TV if desired).
  GRCHAN......Graphics channel (1 - 7) to use for line drawing.
              0 => use multiple graphics planes for the various parts
              of the graphical drawing.
  TVCHAN......TV channel to display gray-scale portion of plot.
              0 -> 1.
  DODARK......When plotting on the TV (only), DODARK controls whether
              contours, polarization lines, and stars are drawn as
              black overlay lines when the grey-scale image is bright
              (>0) or in the same color as used for the lines when the
              image is not bright (<= 0).
  DARKLINE....When the grey-scale image after FUNCTYPE and other
              scaling (values 0 to 1) is > DARKLINE, dark lines are
              used to draw polarization lines, stars, and contours.
              <= 0, > 1 => 0.33.
  TVCORN......TV pixel location (X,Y) where the bottom left corner of
              the plot is to be placed. If either is zero, center the
              plot.  Pixel scaling is always used in GREYS.
  OFMFILE.....' ' => plot in black and white
              'TV' => read the TV OFM (before initializing it)
              other => read a text file giving the OFM to use (as in
              OFMDIR, OFMGET, OFMLIST, OFMSAVE).
              OFMFILE may be of the form 'Logical:File' where Logical
              is an logical (environment) name for a directory and
              File is a file name.  It may also be of the form
              'Stdfile' which is either a file $OFMFIL/Stdfile.uuu
              where uuu is the login user number or a file
              $AIPSOFM/Stdfile.001 in the OFM area distributed with
              AIPS.  Use verb OFMDIR to show what is available in the
              AIPSOFM and OFMFIL directories.  There is a web site
